Clothes in German

Let’s learn some words for clothes in German – these are useful to know in all kinds of situations. After this free audio lesson you’ll be able to describe what someone is wearing, or what you’re looking for when shopping for clothes in a German-speaking country.

Perhaps you’re heading outdoors and a local is recommending what to wear. Either way, let’s get these German words under your belt! Practice speaking aloud as you listen to the audio, and follow the English translation. And here’s a tip to help you remember: as you get dressed each morning, practice saying the German words for the clothes you put on!
